29 June 1986, Queen performed their final night in Munich @ Olympiahalle

During the vocal exchange after ‘A Kind Of Magic,’ Freddie has to practically coerce the audience to keep up with him in the middle. To their credit (and his), he was singing some pretty challenging lines! Freddie puts in a much better performance tonight than last night.

This is the first time Freddie would say, “We’re gonna stay together until we die.” He adds, “I mean, a couple nights… a of couple days.” He goes on, “Anyway, we’d like to do a new song written by Brian. This is from the new album. If you don’t know it yet, this is a preview. It’s called ‘Who Wants To Live Forever.’” He sings the second line first, so he reverses them: “There’s no place for us; there’s no time for us.” Perhaps he did this on purpose, thinking nobody would notice the difference anyway.

Before ‘Love Of My Life,’ Brian reveals, “Actually we spend a lot of time here, because this city has been an inspiration for a lot of our work.”

This show took place while the World Cup final was being played in Mexico, between Germany and Argentina. According to a fan who was in the second or third row, the bouncers kept updating fans with the score throughout the show. About an hour into the show, they were informed that Germany had lost the game, so they sang as loud as they could to “We Are The Champions.”
